If I may: I like this image because upon first view it seems like just another image of “war in Africa”.  I am passionate about showing we Africans protecting our wildlife, not only for environmental or moral reasons (although those are very important too), but because we have been so sidelined in this arena in our very own land.  Our cultures are so entwined with our wildlife but we are hardly shown as spearheading the fight/protection for our natural resources.
